The Dutch Guy

If it ain´t Dutch it ain´t much!

Who is The Dutch Guy?


I am Michel 'Mick' Huijs born and raised in The Netherlands. My Father is Italian from Rome, i still have a Brother and Sister living there, just after kinder-garden till early teenager i lived in Aachen Germany and then again in the Netherlands. In 1997 i moved to Belgium (all Europe), after the Military and schooling i started to work in the Movie, Theater and Music business. I worked as a light tech, gaffer, set assistant, at the art department- did decorations and stints as assistant SFX, as theater tech in a few Opera productions and on tour with a few bands and so on...

In the early 70ths (yes still as a kid with a brush in a hand) and 80ths i started to paint houses, back then i specialized in garage doors and kids rooms with Action and- or Walt Disney figures, later Clients asked me to do Skylines and sculptures in their living room, bedrooms or gardens. I decorated and designed Restaurants, Hotels, Bars, Shops and even Rave Party's. As we actually need to go to school to become painters  - it takes 2 years in the Netherlands to get certified, i'm sure that by now i can do a pretty nice job.

About 15 yrs ago i decided to do resident only, wether Interior or exterior in one or multiply colors, i managed to satisfied all my former clients in Europe. In 2014 i got married to Anne from Milwaukee, by September 2015 i moved to the US and on June 1st. 2016 i started The Dutch Guy. By June 2017 i had to upgrade as i couldn't handle it any more alone. Goes fast in the US when you deliver quality results. I started with residential only, but that's changed to Commercial and Residential.

As a Dutch Guy i prefer Dutch Paint and here Fine Paints of Europe does the Job for me in the US, as i was already Certified in Europe, since November 2017, i'm also a Certified in the US and me and my Team do the best we can, to serve my new Clients in the US with our painting skills.
